Tasty Tuesday: Crock Pot Cooking

Ok, so you have freezer prepared meals but there are some days when you want to come home to a warm cooked meal. That's when you get a wife-- well, if you are the wife-- that's where the crock pot comes in handy.

The other day I made a recipe that was so easy and yet so delicious it would make you wanna slap yo mama! These pictures just don't do it justice- it was great. I got it off the internet and was talking with a girlfriend of mine when I told her that I have a good slow cooker book but the recipes were so in depth they were intimidating. She pulled out this book "Crock Pot: The Original Slow Cooker". I'll admit I was hungry when I cracked it open but the next day I kept thinking about some of the recipes.

There are three books in one: chicken recipes, 5 ingredients or less and soups. All of the recipes seem very simple. I hunted it down and now own it myself. $9.98 well spent. So, now that I have an organized freezer my next step is to plan out my meals and you can bet your bottom dollar- one of our meals will be a crock pot recipe.

To make this lovely meal:

-brown Italian sausage links whole (we used sweet but you could use spicy too)
-put one can whole tomatoes in crock pot then squish them up
-submerge the whole sausage links and drippings in the tomatoes
-add 1 chopped onion
-add 3 or 4 small potatoes
-season to taste (I used salt, pepper and some garlic)
-let it cook on low for 4 hours
-the last 1/2 hour add zucchini and or squash

When this is done cooking pull out sausage, cut into circles, throw them back in and stir. Sprinkle some bread crumbs on top of served up dish with some cheese on top.

This was such an easy recipe and it was a huge hit in our home!
